Retired CFL quarterback, educator and coach, Frank Cosentino has written an enchanting folk story that sees long-dead NHLers "infusing" themselves into Team Canada hockey players when the hockey Gods feared the home team was in mortal danger of losing the 1972 Canada-Soviet hockey summit.
Cosentino was a renowned quarterback who played 10 years in the Canadian Football League (CFL) with Hamilton, Edmonton and Toronto. As a player he was a member of five Grey Cup teams, winning twice with Hamilton.
Now a prolific author and Professor Emeritus at York University, Cosentino has created a supernatural tale that provides a unique and celestial twist to what is considered the greatest hockey series ever played.
This is Cosentino's 15th book. After he retired from the CFL, he taught and coached at the University of Western Ontario for six years where his teams twice won Vanier Cups. He joined Toronto's York University as professor and chair of Physical Education and Athletics. He and his wife, Sheila, live in Eganville, Ontario.
Hockey Gods at the Summit, by Frank Cosentino, is published by General Store Publishing House, Renfrew, Ontario, and retails for $19.95

Frank CosentinoFrom calling plays on the football field to writing books in the Ottawa Valley, Frank Cosentino has intertwined his love of sports and history throughout his life.
The 14 books he had previously written in his academic life as a university professor were sports-related.This was a natural outgrowth of his teaching (University of Western Ontario, York University and the University of Ottawa) which mixed athletics, sports and sports history.His latest book, about the unusual background to the name of the town of Almonte, is unrelated to sports.It sets the story of Juan Nepomuceno Almonte, a Mexican general and diplomat from whom the Ottawa Valley town took its name, against unrest in Upper Canada. It's the kind of book that local authors dream of researching, involving trips south during the worst of Canadian seasons: winter.
After a career as quarterback with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Edmonton Eskimos and Toronto Argonauts, Cosentino turned to teaching various sports-related university courses at the University of Western Ontario.He also coached the University of WesternOntario Mustangs successfully for five years, winning the Vanier Cup in 1971 and 1974.At York University, where he became chair and director of the program of physical education and athletics, he picked up the football again."I felt pressured to get back into football coaching," he says."The team was doing badly and there was some movement to drop it.I didn't want that to see that happen while I was director."
The beautiful Bonnecherre Valley west of Ottawa, where Cosentino and his wife Sheila make their home in Eganville, is a huge change from his home in Toronto.They love it there, and Cosentino has become fascinated with the local sports lore.
Some 150 enthusiastic supporters packed into The Carlu in downtown Toronto on Friday, May 11 to honour York University's 'winningest' coach, Frank Cosentino, and launch the next era of York football.
Those attending the event took the opportunity to look back at the remarkable career of "Coach Cos". Donors raised more than $190,000 in support of the football program, with a significant portion dedicated to supporting our football student-athletes.
Cosentino is a former Grey Cup-winning Canadian Football League quarterback, the author of 15 books and the retired coach for York University's football team. In 1978, he led the men's football team to their first victorious season. Though Cosentino is most frequently remembered for his winning coaching strategies that brought the Yeomen (Lions, since 2003) to 25 victories, guests also recognized his off-field contributions.
"My education was on the field and with Frank."
